When you’re pregnant sometimes the last thing you feel like doing is shopping for outfits for your bump. Until you have a special occasion to shop for, then you HAVE to. And isn’t it always the way: as soon as you need something to wear, you can’t find a thing you like. Or that fits.
Trying on clothes and hunting for the perfect maternity outfit can be frustrating, time consuming, but most of all, expensive. You buy something only to wear once, and never again.
Discovering this exact problem while searching for an outfit for a family wedding, new mama Lisa Campey saw an opportunity to create an online maternity and nursing wear rental service, and Bump Style was launched.
And what a fantastic idea: A Maternity Wear Rental Service online that allows you to rent those gorgeous maternity dresses for one-off occasions for a small price, all from the comfort of your loungeroom!
Bump Style offer a great range of dresses for maternity and post-pregnancy, including wrap dresses, cocktail dresses, shift dresses and maxi dresses for hire, all for a fraction of the price of purchasing the dress.
Lisa has put together a great range to suit every bump, including some designer pieces that aren’t maternity, but can be worn when pregnant to help make you feel fabulous, including a stunning silk off-the-shoulder gown by Diane Von Furstenberg that would be ideal for a formal occasion, or wedding.
One of the more popular dresses and an Instagram favourite worn by Natalie Darling Blog is by designer Tiffany Rose who make the gorgeous Midnight Garden navy floral dress available to hire for that one-off special occasion.
Another two favourites that will suit every mama to-be are from Asos Maternity who have some beautiful maternity dresses, including this Embellished Maxi Dress in blush and the stunning Kimono Maxi Sequin Dress which is also ideal for nursing, both available to rent from $79.
This Diane Von Furstenberg silk off-the-shoulder coral blue dress is a real show-stopper. An absolutely stunning designer gown that can be a hired for a small fraction of the price of purchasing it.
Maternity and nursing wear brand Isabella Oliver has been popular with stylish mamas such as Hilaria Baldwin (Alec Baldwin’s wife) and Olivia Wilde, and this burgandy wrap dress is so versatile, it can be dressed up for a cocktail party, special event or even a wedding to make you feel glamorous and most importantly, comfortable.
There is also this beautiful classic black gown with embellished shoulders by designer Tadashi Shoji – stunning and stretchy it would look amazing with, or without, a baby bump and the wrap front means it is just as versatile for nursing too.
Bump Style have two rental periods – four days, or eight days, so depending on the time of year you may even get two wears out of your dress hire if you time it right!
